The Web Portal: Social Monitoring and Reporting in Europe was created as an integrated source of information on relevant activities in the field of social monitoring and reporting, such as new
social reports or monitoring instruments, new issues of existing publication series as well as recent and forthcoming conferences and other events related to social monitoring and reporting.
The web portal « Social Monitoring and Reporting in Europe », continuously updated, shall provide access to information on the activities itself (e.g. social reports, social indicator systems or composite indices) as well as the institutions behind (e.g. national or supranational organizations, research institutes or governmental institutions). Selected social monitoring and reporting activities will be presented in more detail. The platform will also showcase research results and outcomes from various monitoring and reporting activities on social progress, well-being and quality of life, e.g. pertinent scientific articles or research reports. The website also seeks to enhance and facilitate the cooperation between institutions and researchers enganged in social monitoring and reporting activities across Europe.
This report is an output of the e-Frame (European Framework for Measuring Progress) project. e-Frame is a major international project which aims to provide a European framework for the debate over the measure of well-being and progress. The project involves a broad range of activities including conferences and workshops, as well as research and the development of guidelines. It is led by two major European National Statistical Institutes (NSIs), ISTAT (in Italy) and the CBS (in the Netherlands), and includes amongst the partners two other NSIs (the French INSEE and the UK ONS), the OECD, and several universities and civil society organisations. It is funded by the EU FP7 Work Programme.
